Figment: a thing that someone believes to be real but that exists only in their imagination

Figments come and go as they please, roaming through my head like tiny fireflies or brilliant flashes. They can’t be tamed but might be willing to yield to a kind nudge, very gently. These figments express themselves through photos, music and poetry, art and stories. Thank you for reading my dreams…

Marion Driessen – not noble, just Dutch


Southern temperament with a soft voice, though strong enough to keep two sons in check. My tomcats Boris and Smokey, on the other hand, go their own way. V-man’s biker witch.

Writing is my passion, in English on this blog and in Dutch on Doldriest.

I’m an avid reader of fantasy, mysteries & thrillers, play RPGames and am roleplayer in Dungeons & Dragons campaigns, as you can read in Dungeon Dutchess.

On awards: I’m so sorry, but I can’t accept awards. Nominations really do mean a LOT to me. But all of us bloggers, writers, photographers, poets, funny and serious people, we all share our thoughts and creativity – our souls in many cases! – and in my eyes, all are equal in that. Thank you kindly for understanding.
